After the successful 2016 Ledwidge Lookoff Rally the Bluenose Autosport Club‘s Rally series continued with Round 2 on Saturday, August 27th with the Laffin Lake RallySprint. Five teams tackled 6 stages each in Kennetcook, Nova Scotia with the team of Jonathan Conrad and Wayne Pitts ending up on top of the podium and Cal Vandaalen and Meg Grandmaison following close behind. Ian Pearce and Gordon Sleigh rounded out the top 3. Also competing were Jim Theriault with rookie co-driver (now rally addict!) Sonia Meadows and Mal Swann with Tim Dine in ‘The Fritter’ RX7 which suffered a minor off on Stage 5. Repairs are already under-way!

The next and final Performance Rally event for the 2016 BAC Series is the Middleton, NS based Trout Lake RallySprint in October! Stay tuned!
Good luck to local competitors Mal Swann and Tim Dine at next weekend’s Rallye Defi, the 4th round of the Canadian Rally Championship! This year’s event looks to be killer with a new, more compact format and over 50 competitors registered to take on both Regional and National stages!
